There are circumstances where litigation is in contemplation or has begun where the counter-party to a dispute may try to dispose of assets or otherwise ignore requests to stop certain activity.
Freezing orders will prevent disposal of assets until the case goes on a full trial, but the business is free to continue trading as usual and can continue to pay business costs and expenses. In the case of individuals, a person with a freezing order against them is able to continue to pay their personal expenses such as household bills until the case goes to trial, and can pay for legal costs from their frozen accounts. Often, freezing orders are referred to as the ‘nuclear weapon’ of law, because of the severe binding effect that it has on the defendant.
At Muldoon Britton, we have experience in obtaining freezing orders on behalf of our clients, or defending applications for a freezing order being made against individuals or corporate entities. If you are confronted with a freezing order, or think there is a real risk that assets of the counter-party to a dispute may dissipate their assets to frustrate enforcement of a court award, please get in touch to discuss how a freezing order may help you in these circumstances.
